Dalton Maxwell, a 2015 Nevada Union graduate, helped the Marysville Gold Sox go 3-2 last week, with wins over the Medford Rogues and Lincoln Potters.

Maxwell, an infielder, had his best game of the week on Saturday, going 2-for-5 with a run scored in a 11-6 win over the Potters. For the week, Maxwell went 3-for-18 from the plate with four runs scored, an RBI and three walks.

For the season, Maxwell played in 25 games, has 25 hits, is batting .253 and has 12 RBIs.

The Gold Sox (19-29) are a collegiate wood bat baseball team that plays in the Great West League.

During Maxwell’s time at Nevada Union, he was an all-league shortstop. He attends Menlo College and is a standout on the Oaks baseball team as well.

Josh Roenicke (Nevada Union ‘01; Pericos de Puebla) had a rough outing for the Pericos de Puebla last week, taking the loss against the Saraperos de Saltillo Friday.

Roenicke tossed just three innings, allowed six hits and five earned runs while walking three and striking out four in the loss. Roenicke had gone two straight games without allowing a earned run, and had allowed just five earned runs across his previous six starts.

The 6-foot, 3-inch righty also threw 2/3 of an inning in relief on Sunday, earning a hold in a win over Saraperos de Saltillo.

For the season, Roenicke has pitched in 19 games, started 18, is 7-5 overall with a 2.78 ERA. In 107 innings pitched he has 95 strikeouts and 28 walks.

The Pericos de Puebla (50-45) are a Triple-A minor league team that plays in the Mexican League.

This is Roenicke’s first season with the Pericos de Puebla after spending time in the Los Angeles Angels’ minor league system in 2016. Roenicke had bounced around the Majors from 2008-2013, having stints with the Cincinnati Reds, Toronto Blue Jays, Colorado Rockies and Minnesota Twins.
